René Bouvier Fixin 'Crais de Chêne' 2019

90 Points - Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy - Les Crais de Chêne is a locality located on the alluvial fan between the villages of Couchey and Fixin. The 1.7 ha plot is composed of soils of limestone rockslides mixed with clay. The age of the vines of 55 years and a complete maturity of the grapes allow to have accomplished tannins. A complex and intense wine with aromas of tobacco, brown spices, earth and game. "Limestone-based soils generally seem to make fresher, pithier, more mineral wines in Burgundy, and that's certainly the case for this 50-year-old parcel. Floral and appealing with very appealing fruit intensity, it shows well-integrated whole bunch fruit and 20% new wood." Tim Atkin MW

Taste

Aromas of iron, tobacco, brown spices, earth and game. Fairly rich and sweet, with plenty of volume and breadth. The seductive, intense colour of this red wine is enhanced by a beautiful flash of violet. The nose, intense, and slightly wild, becomes more complex when aerated, with floral notes of clove. The palate is ample, characterised by a beautiful mineral presence.

About the Producer

Bernard Bouvier has 17 hectares under vine in and around Gevrey, Fixin and Marsannay – where he is president of the local syndicate. He has now moved to, and recently extended, state-of-the-art cellars just north of Gevrey and the quality of his wines is now absolute top division.

Vines average 50 years old. Yields are extremely low and the domaine is run on organic principles. Everything is hand picked and Bernard is increasingly employing a higher percentage of whole bunches. Fermentation of the reds involves a long, cold maceration and a gentle extraction – what Bernard calls an infusion.

Equally we can arrange for the bottles to be collected the next time you receive a delivery from us.

If the goods have already been dispatched they must be returned to us unopened and undamaged, and Perfect Cellar (Beyond the Bottle Ltd) will not be liable for any costs associated with the original or return delivery.

No refund can be given when a case has left bond as the value will be affected. Individual bottles of Fine Wine will be considered for refund on a case-by-case basis.

We advise contacting our Customers Services team before making any claim to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
